I'm not positive, but I think your laptop is OK. When the power went out, it most likely went on the battery. Just as if you were to unplug it from the wall the battery would take right over. It least it does on mine. As long as you didn't get a power spike, you should be OK. But there are others on here that know a lot more about that than me and I'm sure they'll chime in soon. :blink:

well im broke right now but i will look for a compressed air can but still though a power lose from lightning for a split second wouldnt effect the fans would it?

 

i know power surges can do damage but can those damages be related to the fans like only the fans?
